Club Teams and Challenge Races

A Club Team is defined as a team that has access to dragon boat(s) and practice(s) outside of dragon boats and practice opportunities/times offered by the Boston Dragon Boat Festival.

A Club team that holds on-water practice(s) using dragon boats not owned by the Boston Festival and outside of practice opportunities allowed by the Boston Festival is only eligible to enter the Club Challenge, All Cancer Survivors Challenge, and Women’s Challenge races.

All other Challenge Races — including Health, Community, College, Corporate/Finance, Business/Networking, Chinese Alumni, and High School — are reserved for recreation level teams that do not have access to dragon boats and additional practice times outside of the opportunities provided solely by the Boston Dragon Boat Festival.

The Festival reserves the right to designate teams for Challenge Races based on the number of teams and level of competition, among other criteria, on a year-to-year basis. It is the Festival’s discretion which Challenge medals to award based on the field of teams entered in that particular year.
